I want to allow users from the Internet to access a web server on my private network. I am PAT'ing all my inside users to my public IP for outbound connectivity. In a PIX I know I must allow the outside user through the "outside" access-list and create a static NAT statement. Other than using a route-map is there another way to map a user from the Internet to an internal server?
Re: Accessing an internal resource from the Internet
I am not clear from your question whether you do have a PIX or are just comparing your situation with what you know you need to do on a PIX. Can you clarify?
As you recognize, when you want to allow users from the Internet to access a server inside your network you need to have a consistent translation of the internal address to some externally reachable address. Static NAT is usually the solution. It gets tricky when you are using PAT.
